RAR Hospitality picks up three Southern California management contracts

(Hampton Carlsbad)

RAR Hospitality acquired the hotel management contracts for three branded hotels in Southern California: the Best Western Plus San Pedro Hotel & Suites, Hampton Inn Carlsbad-North San Diego County and Holiday Inn Express & Suites Carlsbad Beach. The management contract for Best Western Plus San Pedro is the first hotel in Los Angeles for the hotel management and consulting firm headquartered in San Diego.

The Carlsbad hotel projects are joint ventures between hospitality development firm Alps Group of Hotels and RAR Hospitality, and the agreement raises the hotel management company’s portfolio to 19 hotels.

“Our team is excited to enter a new market and apply our expertise in hotel management while continuing to expand our presence in San Diego,” said Marc Potash, president and COO of RAR Hospitality. “With the management takeover of these properties, RAR Hospitality is further strengthening its reputation within the hospitality industry.”

The 60-room Best Western Plus San Pedro Hotel & Suites is a Victorian-style hotel designed for both business and leisure guests, accommodating from one-night to extended stays. San Pedro is a cruise destination and the hotel provides complimentary shuttle service to cruise terminals at San Pedro World Cruise Terminal and is nearby Long Beach Convention Center, Catalina Island and Port of Los Angeles. The hotel has a renovated 2,000-square-foot meeting and conference space, exercise facility with panoramic bay views, outdoor pool and jacuzzi, 24-hour business center and multilingual staff fluent in English, Spanish and French.

The 94-room Hampton Inn Carlsbad-North San Diego County is located at McClellan-Palomar Airport, and is within a short radius from entertainment and attractions including Legoland, San Diego Animal Park, and the beaches of Carlsbad, Calif. Hotel guests have access to a range of amenities such as complimentary breakfast and high-speed Internet.

Opened in late 2013, the 120-room Holiday Inn Express & Suites Carlsbad Beach fully-renovated rooms and suites with expanded living spaces featuring new bedding, workspaces and guest bathrooms. The hotel offers an on-site health and fitness center, complimentary hot breakfast, Wi-Fi and select corporate shuttle transportation. Holiday Inn Express & Suites Carlsbad uses the IHG Green Engage System and applies green solutions at the hotel to reduce energy, water and waste.
